Pittsboro, NC - Chatham County's water treatment plant was expected to be running at full capacity Wednesday evening after being shut down for repairs for the day, but customers should continue conserving water today until the county's water reserves return to normal.

The county began reducing how much water it was treating in the plant Saturday in order to figure out how to fix a broken part that injects chemicals into the water during the treatment process, Baker said.

It was buying about 60 percent of the approximately 2 million gallons a day that northeast Chatham residents use from Durham County. On Wednesday, it bought all of its water from Durham County.
